New sets from Alex

A couple of new sets hat have just been released. I have featured these before but there´s an added dimension to them.
Firstly a dancing party. I love the movement in this set...they all look so happy!! 
A famous medieval character.
And the painted version (not my work) She, and the dancers will be available from either Fredericus Rex or Valdemarminiatures.
Now for something that IMHO is fantastic. It is an older work by Alex.. Also in 1/72nd.!!
The problem seems to be that the reproduction of this masterpiece has hit difficulties in the mold making. I really hope it can be achieved.
Hello to  Fco. Javier Ortego Redondo...thanks for following :-D

One more thing...In the next few days I will open a new blog....this one will only feature the people who are following  this blog...I will categorise (loosely) the blogs in the list. The reasons are;
1. I am loosing track ...some of you who don´t regularily post are getting pushed off my "radar" and I´m missing out on what´s happening, which is a pity.
2. I would love to put everyones blogs up on my blog roll but that seems impossible, unless there is a rolling blog roll whereby one can put 100´s of  blogs on it and it shows the 20 or so latest posts???  By having a blog only for tracking..I will be able to keep up to date
This blog will stay EXACTLY as it is now.....unless....there IS such a thing as a rolling blog roll??
Anyone know of such a thing???

  1. On my blog there are hundreds of blogs I follow like you but it only shows the most recently updated (25) but blog updates get lost, those are great figures but George and the Dragon is amazing.

  2. Fantastic looking pieces!

    I follow over a hundred blogs but only show the first 10 on the cover page. I simply go to my dashboard to see the daily listing in the morning/evening and catch up.The rest of the day I can then just glance at the current 10 list for any new comments. It takes a few minutes more, but works for me.

  4. Dragon scene looks great, must be a nightmare to cast indeed!

  5. I do exactly the same as Christopher(aka Axebreaker), I do still miss some updates now and again though, just because I follow too many blogs, I feel a blog cull is long overdue. Again as the others have said the George and the Dragon scene looks fantastic!

  6. Wow great figures. The dancers are very animated. The mounted female is lovely. The dragon scene is amazing. I am wondering how many pieces it would take to make casting it work. I agree with Dr. Willett, with all those undercuts would be a nightmare. What material are they cast in?

  7. So there is no such thing as a revolving blog thingy...?? :-(
    Never mind. :-D
    @Will...it´s at the moment made just from milliput or whatever...I´d love this ..just to paint up and bung in my display case.
    Cheers

  9. The George and Dragon sculpt is incredible!! If the problems with getting the mould can be sorted out I would really like to know on how to get my hands on a model.

    Btw the other figs are pretty good too!!

  10. Should Lady Godiva being riding astride?

  11. @ Scott...astride what?? ;-D
    True....she would have ridden side saddle normally but as this was a protest she is reckoned to have ridden cross saddle as women of lower status would have.
    The sculpt is based on a painting by John Collier.
    There are several versions of the story and many depictions, both painting and sculpts, both with her side saddle or cross sadle.
    Cheers
